Journalists who were gathered in New Orleans to cover the Republican National Convention talked about topics including the platform hearings, covering the convention, how the city had prepared for the convention. They responded to telephone calls. This was a special edition of the weekly Journalists' Roundtable, held in the World Trade Center in New Orleans.

They also responded to video clips of Vice President Bush testifying before a platform committee, and committee member Senator Lowell Weicker (R-CT) as well as a roundtable discussion earlier in the week including businessman Al Copeland and musician Al Toussaint at the Commander’s Palace restaurant.
